By pressing the clear button it will only clear the instant (first key on/per day) warning on the SID. Will not reset the internal for service in the ECM. If your oil life indicator is way up at 78%, it should not call for a service required message currently
. If this message is on, you can reset the service indicator within the SID. Simply turn key to the on position, select "settings" using the INFO button. Hold the SET button until it beeps. Select "Time for Service" using the INFO button. Hold the SET until it beeps. Select YES using the INFO button. Then press the SET button to reset the indicator. Then you can turn the key back off.
Oil life after reset is perfectly normal to only return back up to 78% (old 9-3SS SID logic returned to 100%) biased on your driving habits and projected oil life for this service cycle. Yes, '07 is the first year for MIU integrated SID.
If you are going to go by the SID indicator for your service and oil changes, 110% vital to use ONLY Mobil 1 0w/40. I beleive it is the only oil in the US that meets the GM-LL-A-025 spec called for long change intervals on the B207 engine (and the B284 Aero variant as well). My suggestion, if your keeping vehicle long term, suggest using a genuine GM/AC Delco filter element and M1 0/40 every 5k miles. Ignore the SID. Will not allow early reset on your MY without Tech2 and security access. Just reset it on the fly when it says time for service and stick to 5k intervals. 30k interval intermediate service of engine air and cabin air filter (Optional/Recommend plugs at this time). 60k Major service Interval (plugs, cabin and engine air filter, dot 4 brake fluid flush, auto/manual trans fluid flush, coolant flush, replace belt tensioner and drive belt) No serviceable fuel filter, built into fuel pump housing.
